    • Beautiful Interior and Alloys
      There is lots of bits going but from this forum focusing on the main items... Full Leather interior and the TH Schmidts. Very well looked after and loved! Had to much trouble with the car mechanically and as a second car its not essential for me any more, i don't have the time for it. If anyone did want the whole lot id let it go and a great price so let me know!

    • Dora v2
      Dora v2 - I figured the bodywork was in reasonable enough condition that I could throw it in for an MoT, but it wouldn't start. Drained the fuel tank and tried some fuel cleaner, changed the rotor arm, dizzy cap, ignition coil, spark plugs, but it still wouldn't spark. So I handed it over to the garage who ended up replacing the whole distributor, and did a little bit of welding on the offside sill - which is the bulk of the remaining rust taken care of. Then they put it in for MoT, and it passed with no advisories. Nice!

      Hey all . Firstly many thanks to the lady person that helped me here I really appreciate it.  Secondly so I've done a lot of work over the last 4 days and I'm at a bit of a loss. I've changed front subframe bushes arb bushes lower suspension arms discs pads exhaust system and wheel bearings. Oh and gone from standard steel wheels 14inch to 15 vw alloys. My question is the left side of my car is now higher than the right side after measuring from floor to arch each side it's out by at least 10mm and it's very noticeable fro. Drivers seat. I've knocked the tracking out left side too since doing the work which is going to be done tomorrow. Could the tracking issue as the wheel is now toe out I believe be causing the cars higher stance that side or could it be down to the arb. Everything is seated right torqued down according to haynes manual. And as far as I know I aligned subframe bushes up perfectly with original markings from centre of old ones pins and followed leaflet instructions for new ones. I'm going to check tyre pressure now just in case but I'm lost . Hope someone can help . 
    • caretakerplus
      You have probably had this problem sorted by now, but if you were not having the problem prior to the wheel bearing work and providing that now work was carried out on any other wheel, it is saying  to me that the ABS unit is now receiving a signal from that N/S wheel. Have you tried unplugging the ABS sensor and checking the condition of the plug/socket? A couple of thoughts come to mind: (1) That new sensor may be faulty. (2) Is it possible that the ABS ring that you bent back into shape, is still not running true and the sensor is not able to 'count the revs'?   Does the garage who did this work have a website on which you may care to leave your thoughts? If they belong to any trade association, a word with them might at least prevent this sort of thing happening to other people.   Regards
    • steveo3002
      most likely the later sort ...108 vs 128   https://www.vwspares.co.uk/VW_Golf_Mk2_Belts.php?model=1.3
    • zob
      Cool, thanks for the headsup - i'll check the current belt markings.    
    • steveo3002
      ah sounds like its getting there, not many receive the attention they need these days and then cheap n nasty parts dont help    when you get round to the timing belt remember theres an early /late style 108 tooth vs 126?  i think , worth checking carefully that you have the correct belt and pump
